Some politicians have a really hard time leaving office. Progressives always have just one more project to complete, and then another, and then another. Progress must be made – problem is it’s “their vision” and not shared by the people paying the bills. Anybody craving an underpass?
Chris Koos has joined this club. He thinks he “created” a great town. Does he know how much debt he has accumulated? Will he really vote to raise property taxes again this year and expect to get re-elected?
Did the Town hire a Communications (propaganda) Director to help Chris out? At 72 he probably won’t be doing much door-to-door campaigning.
Here’s what to look for to see if Koos really wants another term and just couldn’t find anybody else to run: If Illinois Art Station gifting their property to the Town of Normal is on the agenda he’s cooked. Taxpayers get free land they can never sell or profit from but would get the privilege of paying to maintain it. Roads can’t be fixed, sidewalks can’t be kept free of debris, but the property of a non-profit can manicured at your expense?
Illinois Art Station would be just another Koos friends and family perk to add to the long list already reported. Taxpayers are just piggy banks without any rights to object in Koos world.
Chris Koos has a lengthy resume of fleecing taxpayers in his efforts to create his utopia. The only way Koos can possibly defeat Marc Tiritilli is if taxpayers have fled tyranny and aren’t around to vote in April.
